Cast Away Full HD – Watch movie online on 123 Movies. Director: Robert Zemeckis. Writer: William Broyles Jr. Stars: Tom Hanks, Helen Hunt, Paul Sanchez. Chuck Noland (Tom Hanks) is a man that works for FedEx and travels around the world for the company. During Christmas dinner with his family, he gets a call to catch a plane for work. Something goes wrong with the plane on his way and it crashes into the ocean. The rest of the film shows how he tries to survive on the island he ends up on and him living without the love of his life, Kelly Frears (Helen Hunt).
One of the major themes of the movie is survival. Chuck makes the most out of what he has to fend for himself and keep himself alive for the amount of time he is on the island. He makes a bow and arrow type of thing out of sticks to catch fish and crabs to eat, he made a fire with sticks to keep himself warm and to cook his food, and he used the blow up boat from the plane as shelter.

The camera crew did an amazing job showing Chuck’s will to survive through the camera work. They used aerial shots to show how alone he was, close up shots to show the emotions he felt, and cut to shots during his conversations with Wilson to show that the volleyball was the only “friend” he had on the island. Tom Hanks’ portrayal of Chuck Noland is one of the best on- screen performances, in my opinion. He did an amazing job showing the desperation Chuck felt while he was alone on this island struggling to survive.
The greatness of a film is normally traced to the director; there are no two ways about that. We seldom know who the writer is and are even less curious as to who it might be. Cast Away is a case-in-point; it made me shout half way through the film – “who the hell wrote this” ? One of the finest stories of the 21st century, there is much more this film talks about than what it was given credit for. The director, Robert Zemeckis (Forest Gump fame) needless to say has done a brilliant job, but what needs serious mention is the writer – William Broyles Jr.
The writer marooned himself for a week on an island to understand what people do in survival situations and consulted several survival experts. Cast Away deals with the very basics of human life; it pokes the viewer with questions we never ask ourselves. Or maybe the need to ask these questions never arise – Why are we here? The film has a strong existential undertone and Tom Hanks as Chuck Noland, a FedEx employee marooned on an island after a plane crash, has given one of the finest performances of his career. The film deals with the struggle of a man who must survive, for the sake of surviving. Chuck, after repeated attempts, has given up hope of returning to the civilized world, and after realizing he has no control even over the way he wishes to die, he simply lives on with the memory of his would-be-wife – Kelly Frears (Helen Hunt).
During the period when Broyles had marooned himself on an island, a ball came in with the tide and pop came the idea of the inanimate character – Wilson. Broyles highlights how a man is so helpless and no better than a rock, if his existence is not recognized by another. The character of Wilson has given the writer some creative liberty to make the film something not close to a silent film, and this stroke of genius mixed with some luck has been craftily used. The cinematography is commendable and the almost one sided conversations throughout the film are interwoven with hidden philosophies and memorable humor. Cast Away Full HD watch now.
